Qatar Airways Offering Up To 30% Transfer Bonus

Qatar Airways Offering Up To 30% Transfer Bonus

6

Qatar Airways Privilege Club has just launched a transfer bonus, which could also be useful for collecting other “flavors” of Avios (including with British Airways Executive Club).

Transfer points to Privilege Club with 30% bonus

Between November 1 and November 15, 2022, Qatar Airways is offering a bonus when you convert select bank or hotel points into Privilege Club Avios:

  • Convert the equivalent of up to 30,000 Avios and receive a 20% bonus
  • Convert the equivalent of over 30,000 Avios and receive a 30% bonus

The bonus is calculated on a per-transaction basis, so you receive the 20% or 30% bonus based on how many points you transfer in one transaction, rather than cumulatively.

Participating transfer partners include the following:

Ahli Bank Oman, Ahli Bank Qatar, Ahli United Bank, Air Miles, Axis Bank, Banque Saudi Fransi, Cathay United Bank, CBQ, CIMB, Citibank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Doha Bank, Dukhan Bank, Emirates Islamic Bank, Hana, HSBC (Hong Kong, Mexico, Taiwan and USA),  Hyundai Card, Kasikorn Bank, Kuwait Finance House, Mashreq, Masraf Al Rayan, Oman Arab Bank, Ping An, Qatar International Islamic Bank (QIIB), QIB, QNB, Standard Chartered Bank (Singapore), ALL – Accor Live Limitless, Centara Hotels & Resorts, Fliggy, Hyatt Hotels, Shangri-La Circle and Ooredoo (Qatar).

Eligible Privilege Club transfer partners

Of the eligible partners, Citi ThankYou is the only major program in the United States that’s valuable. None of the hotel partners allow you to efficiently convert points into Avios, as Marriott Bonvoy is excluded.

This bonus is being offered on Qatar Airways’ end, meaning you won’t see the bonus reflected directly with partners. Bonus Avios will post within 45 days of when transferred points post to your Privilege Club account (though hopefully they post much faster than that).

Use this offer to earn British Airways Avios

As of earlier this year, Qatar Airways Privilege Club adopted Avios as its new rewards currency. This was an exciting development, as it’s possible to transfer Avios at a 1:1 ratio between the various programs that use this rewards currency. That includes Aer Lingus AerClub, British Airways Executive Club, and Iberia Plus.

This means that you could use this offer to indirectly convert Citi ThankYou points into British Airways Avios with a 30% bonus as well. That’s something that will no doubt interest many, but just keep in mind that the bonus won’t post instantly. Therefore this won’t be as useful to some as the other bonuses we’ve seen from transferable points currencies to British Airways.

Use this offer to earn British Airways Avios

Bottom line

Qatar Airways Privilege Club is offering up to a 300% bonus when you convert bank or hotel points into Avios. This is a solid opportunity for those with Citi ThankYou points, especially since you could convert these Avios to British Airways Executive Club.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this Privilege Club transfer bonus?

    Any updates on terms of 10-12% off award ticket promo with points transfer?

    How do this promotion help if I can not see any Qsuites availability for Summer 2023 9-10 months out. And if something ops up, the transfer bonus will take time to show up and may miss the opportunity.

    The promotion could be quite more lucrative after reading more closely; there is an additional 10-20% off award bookings offered as a promo code for those who transfer Avios:

    "To collect 20% bonus Avios and save up to 10% on your next trip, simply convert reward points worth up to 30,000 Avios. You can also earn 30% bonus Avios and get up to 12% off on your next trip when converting reward points worth over...

    "A confirmation email will be sent to qualified members eligible for up to 12% on flights with Qatar Airways post credit of Avios with a promo code valid for bookings on all Qatar Airways operated itineraries worldwide within the specified booking & travel period."

    Not specific on what the requirement is, but it sounds like this could be a good deal for certain Qsuite award bookings.

    Typo in the summary - a 300% bonus would have been nice!

    Could you transfer Capital One miles into ALL points with 20% bonus and then transfer ALL points to avios?

    Is US Hyatt not eligible?
